On last nights edition of Talking Smack, the WWE Network Smackdown Live post-show, Smackdown Live commissioner Shane McMahon announced to Smackdown Tag Team Champions American Alpha that they would be defending their titles later this month at the Smackdown Live PPV Elimination Chamber, in a tag team turmoil match. Their opponents have been announced as The Usos, The Vaudevillains, The Ascension, Breezango, and Heath Slater & Rhyno.
Smart money is on AA retaining their titles, but if I had to pick one team out of the bunch that could even be a possibility, it would be the Usos. Right now in Smackdown’s tag team division it seems that they are practically the only other team with actual credibility and that aren’t used just to be jobbed out. This should still be an entertaining match regardless of the outcome, and at least it gives AA something to do until they can get into an actual program with another team for their belts.
